    00:01 Finally, we have cranial nerve XII or the hypoglossal nerve, which is gonna go from its nuclei in the brainstem out the hypoglossal canal and then eventually make its way to the tongue, where it's going to provide the innervation for the muscles of the tongue, except for one muscle the palatoglossus which is going to be innervated by cranial nerve X, the vagus nerve.
